I Like It!
No MK4V show ever deserves two stars, no matter what, unless recorded underwater. It's too bad that reviewers can be so critical, I guess expecting every show to be near SBD sounding with just the perfect sonic orgasm inducing quality. This show sounds nice, smoothe and balanced. It's imminently listenable and provides I'm sure a very accurate representation of what the sound was like at the tapers location.

not grate sound...
Sorry to be critical but the sound is really muted and blurred, vocals especially, compared to other shows I've heard fromother venues.
Nice set list. Probably just an awful place to "tape".
Thanks be to this taper and all others. Know that you're appreciated by those of who could not be at this particular show.
I saw/heard them in LA (5/9/09) and was blown away. Could they be better than GD in heyday? (Saw them first time in '74) Probably not, but hot damn hot! And probably better than GD on an off-day. (I'll probably get grief for this!)
Got so blown my son had to carry me out and then drive us home. We'd seen/heard Ratdog, but this time he got (close to) the full measure.
Now he understands me better. He said to his Mom that he now understands why I dance the way I do 'cuz lots of other folks do too and we all must have went to the same dance school...
For a little while, here in 2009, the vibe exists again, to my surprise and delight and thanks be!
Once in a while...
